            My favorite computer is the ones i come across in the trash or at 
garage sales, when people say they're junk and not worth a red cent. I bought 
an older compaq , monitor ,dual cdroms, ect..for $5.00 and that was well worth 
5.00 . I enjoy figuring what went haywire on it and just general snooping on 
the harddrive.. Not to mention, being able to replace my nephews cdrom for 
nothing. Several years ago, I put together a old computer for my sons daycare 
with shareware programs and menu in dos for kids. It was realy cool. It gave 
early exposure for children and they felt quite in control doing it all by them 
selves. I've wanted to get into business doing computer work, but things just 
haven't panned out yet.. I have gotten several friends and family into 
computers, and of course I am the techinical support person. I have people that 
call and require help and I try my best to help.So int he meantime, i just 
recycle computers and have a stack of them around. I have gotten rid of all my 
8088s and 386's. Since I have become disabled, I am limited on what i can do 
these days.  I did however buy myself this compaq presario 6000 with xp on it. 
I like it, its powerful,etc, but I miss taking that cover off and fiddling with 
parts and trying things out on it. I haven't installed much as far as shareware 
and things, for since i didnt get a xp cd , im scared to do much to it. But I 
still have a few old computers around the house to play with. and I never pass 
up a free computer..and my friends and family get ones for me too. But by far 
the best thing I ever did, was to get my husband hooked. THat makes my hobby 
alot more tolerable. I got him an compaq 6000 also, but he still has his old 
computer that he uses for his data base. And around here...when somebodys 
computer goes down, mine,hubby or the kids, its top priority to fix. Atleast 
others with the love of computers understand that, but then there are others 
that think we are insane.  Barb

        By the way, I think I made a mistake and said I like Compaq computers.
        I don't, but they aren't that bad. :O)

        I like Dell the best right now. 
        But if a person is on a tight budget, an Emachine will work quite well
